What effort of man—what production of art,
To external appearance such grace can impart,
Its an elegant HAT?—It has magic in truth,
That makes the old young—adds much beauty to youth,
And gives such a finish to DRESS as to throw
A "shine" on the man—from the top to the toe.
In short, there's a splendor in "Beavers," which he
Who views must admire—☞Call at Mayell's and see!
